1920's 3 hour music track

Topics 1920's

A collection of music from the 1920's. I collected this together to act as a background to a 1920's murder mystery scenario. These songs are all available in collections elsewhere on I've just put them together, levelated them, added a tiny bass boost and a little bit of compression. Many thanks to those avid collectors who had made them available for me.

It would be great if you could put the date of recording next to each song!

Subject: Fine Review of Early Music
I appreciate the time and effort that went into compiling this collection of early popular music.
All the greats of the day are covered, and as a random group, it's got classcis, and some lesser-heard items by great performers.
All sound quite good, as the compiler says, "I've just put them together, levelated them, added a tiny bass boost and a little bit of compression."
I noted that the Noel Coward recording that's second in the collection is a later version recording than the 20's, so odd in the sound (more modern) but that's a tiny point, compared to the wide, invoving survey of some wonderful recordings.
